Robin Furth was born and raised in Philadelphia and attended the University of Pennsylvania. While enrolled in the Ph.D. program at the University of Maine, she was introduced to Stephen King, who needed a research assistant. Her work with King as he completed the Dark Tower series produced the Dark Tower Concordance. Furth has since written the story lines for Marvel’s bestselling comic book spin-off series The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born. She divides her time among Maine, the south of England, and Mid-World.
